This is related to the previous post. This is from the guy, Jani Uusitalo, who was contacted by the Oulu police to remove parts of his blog. He says…
I’ve just been informed by Tuomas that the Deputy National Police Commissioner had found the demand made by the Oulu police to remove my posts to be unlawful. He had also admitted something that to me seems an important point: the law regarding the freedom of speech and mass media is not known well enough among the police.Ã‚Â This to me is what the whole mess was about: I never considered the officer in question to be evil, he just didn’t know the law he was wielding.
That in itself is a serious matter, naturally, since the police of all people should know the law by which they come to dealings with people. However, I’m happy to find the police in this case willing to admit that a mistake has been made.
Concerning the case against me, I’ve been called in for questioning next Friday.
